UNECE Regional Advisers

Regional Advisers are experts in the six priority areas identified by UNECE member States: Environment, Transport, Statistics, Economic Cooperation and Integration, Sustainable Energy, and Trade.

Regional Advisers are specialists in capacity development as well as resource mobilization; they are experts in the subprogrammes of UNECE: Environment, Transport, Statistics, Economic Cooperation and Integration, Sustainable Energy, Trade, Forest and the Forest Industries, Housing and Land Management.

Regional Advisers provide short-term advisory services and expertise to UNECE programme countries, in their implementation of UNECE legal instruments, norms and standards. They participate in national capacity-building activities and contribute to implement technical cooperation projects. Their activities facilitate the sharing of experience and good practices among the UNECE membership. 

UNECE engages with the Resident Coordinators (RCs) and the United Nations Country Teams (UNCTs) to maximise the impact of country-level technical cooperation, inter alia, the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF).

Each Regional Adviser acts as a cross-sectoral focal point for UNECE with the Resident Coordinator Offices of three to four programme countries, and with the respective UN Country Teams.

As of 1 January 2023, UNECE programme countries are covered as follows:
